Traffic Notification: Hwy 23 Floodgates in Oakville

PLAQUEMINES PARISH, LA – On Thursday, May 21, 2020, beginning at 1:00 PM (weather permitting) Plaquemines Parish Government along with our Federal & State partners will be conducting a floodgate closure exercise on Highway 23 in Oakville. As we prepare for the upcoming hurricane season it is required to test/exercise each of the nearly 40 floodgates located within the parish.

Law enforcement will be on-site directing traffic throughout the exercise. We ask that everyone to please be patient as there may be some traffic delays and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
